What we're about

Ilé Ta Jose serves the Greater Los Angeles, Inland Empire, and Orange County areas of California, and consists of Santeras, Paleros, spiritualists, shamans, and Mediums that practice and study the principles of Afro-Cuban style Espiritismo, Palo Mayombe, and Santería (Lucumí) with a hands on approach to these traditions.

Ile Ta Jose is lead by Palo Mayombe and Orisha priest, Afimaye Galarraga also known as "Tata Lumbanda" that has been an ordained priest for over 25 years. Afimaye is a native of Havana, Cuba and is the son of the well renowned Afro-Cuban priestess and elder, Alejandra Galarraga, and his father is the legendary Lazaro Galarraga, co-founder of Cojunto Folklorico Naciónal de Cuba. Afimaye also conducts Orisha meditation classes entitled "Healing With The Voices" at the House of Intuition Metaphysical Shop on West Sunset Blvd in Los Ángeles and also at GypsyLuv Metaphysical Shop in Pomona, CA.

We conduct seances known as "Misas" every first Friday of the month for your spiritual development, and often have musical events known as Cajons, Bembès, and Tambores to sing and dance to the Ancestors, Spirits of Palo Mayombe, and the Orishas.

Ile Ta José is a bilingual group that has a strong focus on the Spanish and English languages. Come prepared to learn, meet new like-minded people with experience, and most of all to evolve your bloodline, spirit guides, and yourself!

Seance-Prayer Night (Misa)

Ilé Ta-José

A seance, or as it's called in Spanish, a "misa", is a gathering that takes place amongst spiritualist, mediums, clairvoyants and channellers to communicate and deliver messages that come through from spiritual energies and spirit guides. This is a great way to communicate with ancestors and spirit guides as well as learn how to channel and develop ones spiritual abilities. During this sacred circle, we commence with a series of prayers that help set the tone and open the spiritual gateways so that our spirit guides can deliver important messages that can help us live a better life. Guidance on relevant concerns one might have as well as making us aware of issues to be cautious about are revealed. All are welcomed. The seances are mainly conducted in Spanish, but mostly all attendees speak English. If a message comes through for you, it will be delivered in English if you don't speak Spanish. Don't let the language barrier deprive you of this special spiritual gathering. ATTIRE: Absolutely NO BLACK clothing nor anything too dark. White is always preferred and suitable for the occasion but if not, light colors please. For women: NO mini-skirts, nothing too short, nor anything revealing nor see-through. Long skirts and/or pants are ok. For men: NO shorts, NO tank-tops. Pants only. This community of service is a labor of love and therefore donations to help with location, flowers, candles, and other needed items to make these type of get together possible are greatly appreciated. Your donation helps keep this spiritual movement going. Let's get together and channel.

ORISHA SONG CLASS

Ilé Ta-José

Ilé Ta-Jose announces the next Orisha Song class. Orisha song class will take place on the 3rd Saturday of every month as of January. Many are eager to learn how to correctly sing to the Orishas and properly venerate them by way of chants. This is your opportunity to execute just that. Come join me in this wonderful and much needed experience in which you will learn to correctly sing Orisha songs that are frequently heard but pronounced incorrectly; as well as old school songs that have gone lost. Cost for the class is $40 (the cost of the song class, includes theory, history and a booklet of the songs written by me).
